That damned metaphor

What's Mallard raving about today?

China, Old people.

In order for a metaphor to work, Mallard, it should have some resonance with the subject matter.

So unless you are saying that old people are like brutal Totalitarian states (which may be the case, given that Mallard hates everyone reflexively and intensely), this constitutes the worst metaphor ever.

Is that foppish dandy about to spray her with mace?

The joke is that "makeover" is being used in two difference senses. It's really funny.

She's in the wrong store for that sort of service. She should try 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Big house, white, can't miss it.

So, she wants a makeover that will go right back to the way it was before as soon as the Olympics are over?

Maybe she means a different hairstyle, given that Tinsley drew it to look like pollution.

What's Tinsley's issue with China, anyway? The pollution? The human rights abuses? It's still cool if we do those things, right?

So how many days in a row will he only do one panel?

Is he making a point that Republicans are lazy? And not just intellectually?
